a bunch of things

Check out this post from The Art of Manliness - totally makes me want to buy this and live in 1950.

Yesterday was the Special Olympics Torch Run! Here are some iphone pics:

Check out awesome Lorien dragging that kid of hers all around (and up hills!) with the bike trailer - she rocks!

Next, since Lucas is on Trek this week, we weren't able to celebrate our anniversary on the actual day (don't feel bad for us, we're spending a week in San Francisco next week!). Luckily, I have the greatest husband ever ... he had a lovely surprise waiting for me on my desk at work that morning...

He knows how much I love my Diet Coke and Good & Plenty ... He's the best.

So I'm teaching Relief Society this week, and it's Teaching for Our Time. The article is from the most recent conference: Coming to Ourselves: The Sacrament, the Temple, and Sacrifice in Service. It's such a great talk from Elder Robert D Hales encouraging us to become spiritually self-reliant as we live our covenants. You should read it.

Last, my friend Jesse has this awesome blog where she puts her incredible work - Scatter Sunshine Printables. She's seriously so talented. Anyway, she added one recently with a summer B of M reading chart - I'm totally going to do it. Check it out.

PS Jesse - I wish you and I were better friends, I think you're really neat.
